Scimitar Sword 500822

Scimitar Sword

The original scimitar sword was called a shamshir, (which meant "lion's tail") and had a deeply curved blade that was almost a half circle. Developed in Persia, this type of blade was effective for draw cuts, but other than that, of limited utility. This caused the blade to shift its shape into a more useful version, which we have chosen to copy. Blade is quite effective, being able to draw cut as well as slash, and the point is quite useful in the "hooking" thrust often used. Made from high carbon steel. Grip is wood, and the guard and scabbard furniture are steel. Complete with scabbard. A beautiful and romantic sword. Copied from the Hank Reinhardt collection. Can be sharpened for additional fee. Circa 1700

Lovely picture but slapped together in practice. Hilt was bent just enough to be annoyingly perceptible and seemed glued together, and doesn't meet against the blade completely. The scabbard seems to be a bit of an afterthought, and mainly troublesome in that it doesn't seem to fit well near the hilt end of the blade, and it wasn't long until I was seeing rust on the blade around where the inside of the scabbard stopped doing its job. Also note that even when unsharpened, the point can certainly destroy an eye, so be careful.
